Earlier this week, the Senior Girls' Basketball Team secured a solid victory, defeating the St. John's Eagles and followed that up with another win on Thursday against the Mulgrave Titans "B" team.

The Junior Girls' team achieved a notable milestone by winning their first game against the Fraser Academy Mustangs.

The Senior Boys' team emerged triumphant against Fraser Academy.

The Bantam Boys' team has also been performing exceptionally, holding a 7-1 record and currently standing in second place in the GVISAA league.

The Junior Boys' team has maintained an undefeated record of 7-0 and is leading in the GVISAA league.

Congratulations to our Bantam, Junior and Senior Boys' teams for all winning their games against the Vancouver Christian School Phoenix in Thursday's triple header.


Law 12 students took learning to a whole new level with their latest assignment. Selecting eight Law terms from their coursework after learning about Elements of Crime, they presented their findings through various creative avenues. Students created short films and visually appealing websites and showcased their unique talents and teamwork. Each project reflected creativity and enthusiasm. 

This video is an example and was created by Talia Charach, Luca Jeffrey, Abby Kalmek, Carsyn Leipsic, and Henry Simkin-Watt.


The Grade 9 Science classes conducted a physical and chemical change experiment this week. During the experiment, they asked questions, formed a hypothesis, and discussed the result. Judging by the pictures below, the students enjoyed experimenting and learning!

On Thursday, our Director of Teaching and Learning, Danielle Paloposki delivered the keynote address to an audience of over 350 teachers at Simon Fraser University. Part of an all-day teacher-education simposium, Mrs Paloposki's kicked off the day's learning with a 90-minute exploration of Standards-Based Grading and creating authentic ways to assess and further develop students' learning across the curriculum.

Later in the day, Mrs P led a workshop with Science teachers to further unpack how assessments can be used for student learning and how skill and competency development can lead to greater levels of understanding.

Way to go, Mrs P!!
